This hotel has an amazing history but it needs to update a few things. Firstly the pillows made it impossible for us to get a good night sleep which is vitally important. The plumbing needs a rework as we could hear everyone upstairs flush their toilet.
The food and service was excellent but the wine list was all $$$ and there was no coffee available in the room. They also made us sit at the same table everytime we ate. Why couldn't we sit where we wanted? The location is at the end of town so definitely not ski in and out. The bus is free but in peak hour it is packed with people and their dogs!
It was nice but they should really improve some basics.
